Notes

very noticable hiss and a hum so may have the extra cassette generation indicated on resources for tape trader site but was listed as MSR>cass>dat>cdrs and then eac>wav>cooledit2000>wav>shn; Channel weirdness at begin of cd1t3 where beginning is missing, cd1t5 7:01; A few miniscule spikes around the weirdness were deamplified in cooledit2000 to improve their listening for playback; cd2t4 drop/cut 11:00

same as SHNID 3927 through d1t09. d1t10 through d2t04 now circulate with an unexplained 'fix'.

Subject: Yeah!
I love these early Spanish Jams, I swear they're the archetype for Grateful Dawg's Arabia, they always reminds me of it so much, I can just imagine David's mandolin coming through any second. And The Eleven is always a favorite of mine, I don't know if this is really the first one they played, sounds too polished, but it is the earliest one on the archive. And how about that 5 min Dark Star! It's so fast and cluttered, you can tell they knew what they wanted to do with it, but they just wanted to squeeze it all in and didn't allow it to breathe, still great nonetheless. And the rest is of course great, I mean it is a '68.

Subject: Wow
Not a review as such, just I felt I had to say.. The sound quality is good enough for the sheer fucking musical brilliance of the band to shine through. Several times I had to say out loud "Bloody hell thats good!", even during Schoolgirl, which i dont much like

I'm not sure what adjustments J Cotsman has performed on the later portions of this file, but this still remains a rather hissy/muddy, later-generation sourced mess.

That said, it's still pretty fucking amazing, though this show falls well short of the magical shows over the next months, both in tightness and sound quality.

The Spanish jam is a flamenco masterpiece. And as the cohesiveness of the jamming continues to improve over the subsequent shows, it's difficult to believe this is a first ever performance. Anyone know if it was performed in Bakersfield on 1/14?
